Create Community

During your time at Wake Forest, community and opportunities to build new relationships were readily available. As you journey into life after college, it is up to you to be intentional about meeting new friends, growing your network, joining groups, and finding formal and informal mentors to support you personally and professionally. Putting down roots and living where you are key to developing community in a new place. Use the following resources and tools to get started!

WAKECommunities: You can find fellow Demon Deacons almost anywhere! Find your local alumni community to seek out opportunities for meeting other Wake Forest alumni within your city.

Wake Forest Alumni Groups on LinkedIn: Whether you join the larger Wake Forest Alumni Group or any of the sub-groups based on city, you can connect with thousands of Wake Foresters in your professional field of interest. LinkedIn groups allow you to view job openings, engage in discussions, and send private messages to new connections. A forum for people with shared interests to connect around everything from business interests to outdoor pursuits to volunteering. And, if you don’t see something that interests you, you can create a group of your own. Chances are there is someone else out there who is interested in the same thing. This online resource can be a great way to make new friends in a new city.
